I squeeze my eyes shut tight
To keep away the tears
I swallow with all my might,
Swallowing my fear
Down my throat it slips
That evil, pint-sized demon
I must choke down with dinner
Each and every evening
I'd never complain of a shot
Or fret over a scrape
But when it comes to green beans,
That's too much on my plate.

The author's comments:
Most kids have conventional fears- spiders, needles, school, bullies, etc. Mine are a little strange, and a constant dinner time battle- those evil little green beans. It's probably best I stick to pasta- for the sake of poetry.
